In Case You Missed It! Our Amazing Nexus Sport Video - A Must View

We are extremely proud to release our stunning Nexus Sport video. In early June 2018, 42 of our talented sportswomen and sportsmen dazzled in front of the camera to help put together a sport promotional video for Nexus. Our aim was to capture the variety of sports we offer at Nexus and to show some of the key attributes we strive to display on a daily basis; respect, passion, enjoyment and excellence.

I do hope you enjoy the 90 second clip, and a huge thank you to all of those involved in the filming process.
